CommentaryOn 6 August 1609, Barent van Someren, 37, and Hans van Cleeff (of R 27385 of Montias2) made a declaration concerning the delivery of tobacco for warehousing (see the NOTES to R 27385). As early as 1615, a painting of the Three Kings by Barent van Someren was recorded in the inventory of Hendrick Duysterloo. On 28 June 1616, Barent van Someren, 44, testifies with some other witnesses on behalf of the jeweler Franchoys Strick. The previous Saturday, Carlo Hellemans (cited, inter allia, in the NOTES to R 27456 of Montias2), and some other individuals had come to Van Someren's house. A servant of one of the guests had stolen a knife. On 25 May 1619, Adriaentgen Thomas, widow of Hans van Someren (Barent's brother), Barent van Someren, painter, and Pauwels van Someren (also Barent's brother), painter, living in Bolteren in Flanders, sold a mortgage they jointly held on a parcel of land in Boxsel. On 2 December 1624, Barent van Someren delivered 12 paintings to Cathalyntge Bisschops, the widow of the recently deceased Pieter Heeseman (of INVNO 577) in compensation for a debt of 200 f. The widow was satisfied with the transaction. About January 1626, Barent van Someren, citizen (of Amsterdam), and hospita in the Hoff van Hollant, submitted a request (to the magistrates). He had lived 24 years in Amsterdam and had been innkeeper in the Hoff van Hollant. He would now like to lease Het Schilt van Vranckrijck on the Dam. But the rent is too high.He requests that, in case he leases the inn, for the favor that the sales of houses and courts on the New Side should be held in his inn (Bredius, ünstler-inventare p.209 of the Nachträge). On 23 July 1626, Barend van Someren, 54, and Adriaen van Nieulandt, 39, made a deposition at the request of Pieter Cornelisz. Blyenbergh (cited in the NOTES of R 26504 of Montias2), that they had gone twice to the house of Jan Marines, picture dealer, to inspect some 32 paintings, which Marines and his wife wished to sell. Jan Marines may possibly be identical with Hans Marijns de oude cited in R 297. On 28 July 1632, Barent van Someren Lambertsz., born in Antwerp, and the honorable Dianora (Leonora) Mytens, born in Naples, drew up their testament. They named their children, Anna, Sara, Aert, Hendrick, Maria, Leonora, Constantia, and Susanna as their heirs (Bredius, Künstler-inventare pp. 802-806). She was buried in Amsterdam on 11 September 1649, coming from op den Dam in 't Schilt van Vranckryck (Bredius, op.cit., p. 209 of the Nachträge). Supplementary information is to be found in Briels's Zuidnederlandse immigratie p.88, 89-100 and passim. See also the NOTES to R 20424 of Montias2.
